Forecastle Music Festival Is Slated To Bring Chris Stapleton, Arcade Fire, And Modest Mouse To Kentucky This Summer

Held in Louisville, Kentucky, Forecastle Music Festival is now in its 16th year as a major American music event. But even with its longevity, the fest has managed to fight off urges of looking like every other music festival. With its 2018 lineup, Forecastle is still distinctly Kentuckian, deftly mixing country, rock, hip-hop, and pop for a music festival that in a lot of ways displays a similar taste as Uproxx’s music section.

Topping the bill will be Kentucky native Chris Stapleton, along with iconic indie rock outfits Arcade Fire and Modest Mouse, but below that, you’ll find many of the artists that Uproxx has been hyping for the past couple years: The War On Drugs, Jason Isbell, Father John Misty, Courtney Barnett, Hiss Golden Messenger, Kurt Vile, Vic Mensa, and White Reaper. Rounding out the bill are the likes of Jenny Lewis, Margo Price, Houndmouth, T-Pain, Vance Joy, Punch Brothers, and Jimmy Eat World.

Forecastle is set to take place from July 13th-15th at Louisville’s downtown Waterfront Park, with three-day passes starting at a very reasonable $149.50. Tickets go on sale this Friday at the Forecastle website. For those who are a little more flush, VIP offerings include exclusive viewing areas, expedited entry, air-conditioned lounges, and some swag. And new this year is a Yacht Club which is pretty much how it sounds, boasting access to the Mary M. Miller Steamboat and Boathouse. All in all, it sounds like a pretty great time.

New Issue of ‘Batman’ Will Explore His Catholic Upbringing & Why He’s Not a Christian Anymore

The recent run of Batman comics by red-hot comic book writer Tom King has really leaned into Batman’s human side, exploring his loneliness, mental health and doomed romantic life more profoundly than any in recent memory. And now, it appears, the series is going to tackle yet another of the Dark Knight’s all-too-human experiences: lost faith.In a preview of an upcoming issue illustrated by Lee Weeks and released to Inverse, Bruce Wayne reveals that his father raised him as a Christian. Wayne’s father, as you may be aware, is no longer in the picture, and when he died, he took Bruce’s fledgling faith with him. No word on whether or not Bruce is going to rediscover his faith as part of this story, but he’s not in a great place, generally. His bride-to-be, Catwoman, stood him up at the altar and he’s in trouble with the law for possibly botching a case. So, if ever there was a time for Batman to turn to a higher power, it might be now.You can read the full preview here.
